1) First, right click on your desktop, then click on “New,” and then From “Create shortcut”.
2) A new Window textbox will appear. Write SHUTDOWN -s -t 3600 in the text box. (Instead of the numbers, write the desired time down. Make sure to input time in seconds)
3) Now press “Next” and then “Finish.”
4) A new folder appears in your desktop. That’s where the timer is stored, so if you double click it, your computer will automatically shut down after the set time.
